When Merrie and I were rewatching Season 2, we kept on pointing out that Deeks was wearing plaid. When I was asked to have a topic for Decidedly Deeks my first thought was to look into how much plaid Deeks wears.
We start off with Season 1 Episode 20 “Fame”. He tells Kensi
“Don’t worry, Fern. I’ll be back.”
Then there is Season 2 Episode 9 “Absolution” (one of my favorites) where Deeks says
Marty Deeks: Why do bad guys always have such awesome houses?
Sam Hanna: What’s the matter, Deeks? Not feeling your loft?
Marty Deeks: This guy’s got his own Hobbit Shire.
[Season 2 Episode 20 “The Job”]
Believe it or not I actually have taken a chair and dragged it all over the carpet to make tracks so it look like I vacuumed… but I was also 15 and my Mom was coming home from work in five minutes.
DEEKS: And then she put her darks in with my whites and now all my clothes are purple, so I look like Barney the dinosaur. I mean, what husband can put up with this? This marriage is doomed.
KENSI: No, no, this marriage is doomed because you are OCD.
DEEKS: What do you mean, because I like to clean? At least I’m not the one that took a desk chair and dragged it over the carpet to make tracks so it looks like I vacuumed. I mean, honestly, who does that?
[Season 3 Episode 22 “Neighborhood Watch”]
You know your kids have watched NCIS: LA when you get a package and they scream
“What’s in the BOX!!!!”
[Season 4 Episode 14 “Killhouse”]
Note: While working on this I realized that he doesn’t wear plaid that often but there is at least one character who does in every episode. Maybe that will be a summer project for me.
So which one is your favorite?

OMG you have no idea how much that has just helped me! I’ve been talking with a friend about a Deeks/Sam scene which I am hunting for, all the information I have is that Deeks wears plaid. (Which I love him in) so have been trying to find it. Thank you for this, the list at the end helps so much.
All episodes is famous.
Best one for my is Episode 22: Neighborhood Watch
BTW writers, “What’s in the BOX!!!!” (seriously, what?)
all of them!!!!
When you go through them, count how many different ones there are. I challenge the NCIS:LA team to a plaid-off.
Can’t decide on just one, so I’ll say all of them:)
The red/grey one 🙂
hmmmmm wait. What? What am I supposed to be looking at?
He’s not the only one wearing plaid. They all do, well except for Sam and Hetty.
The green/blue one in Plan B and the red one in The Job are my favourites on Deeks. Wouldn’t it be a hoot for all the team to turn up wearing plaid in an episode. Are you reading this John Kousakis?
